Diffuse peritoneal mesothelioma: A case series of 62 patients including paraoccupational exposures to chrysotile asbestos

American Journal of Industrial Medicine 2017 September [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Kradin RL1,2, Eng G2, Christiani DC Abstract BACKGROUND: Diffuse peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (DPM) is caused by exposure to asbestos. The medical literature has linked DPM primarily to high levels of asbestos exposure, in particular amosite. Controversy persists as to whether chrysotile is capable […]

Treatment for recurrence after extrapleural pneumonectomy for malignant pleural mesothelioma: A single institution experience

Thoracic Cancer 2013 February [Link] Okamoto T, Yano T, Haro A, Yoshida T, Kohno M, Maehara Y Abstract BACKGROUND:   Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a relatively rare, aggressive neoplasm associated with asbestos exposure. Extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP) is often performed for resectable MPM as part of a multidisciplinary treatment; however, available data on treatments for […]

Evaluation of intracavitary administration of curcumin for the treatment of sarcomatoid mesothelioma

Oncotarget 2017 February [Link] Pouliquen DL, Nawrocki-Raby B, Nader J, Blandin S, Robard M, Birembaut P, Grégoire M Abstract A rat model of sarcomatoid mesothelioma, mimicking some of the worst clinical conditions encountered, was established to evaluate the therapeutic potential of intracavitary curcumin administration. The M5-T1 cell line, selected from a collection established from F344 […]

Indolent peritoneal mesothelioma: PI3K-mTOR inhibitors as a novel therapeutic strategy

ESMO 2017 April [Link] Dolly SO, Migali C, Tunariu N, Della-Pepa C, Khakoo S, Hazell S, de Bono JS, Kaye SB, Banerjee S Abstract Peritoneal mesothelioma (MPeM) is a scarce abdominal-pelvic malignancy that presents with non-specific features and exhibits a wide clinical spectrum from indolent to aggressive disease. Due to it being a rare entity, […]

Italian pool of asbestos workers cohorts: mortality trends of asbestos-related neoplasms after long time since first exposure

Occupational and Environmental Medicine 2017 August [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Ferrante D, et.al. Abstract OBJECTIVE: Asbestos is a known human carcinogen, with evidence for malignant mesothelioma (MM), cancers of lung, ovary, larynx and possibly other organs. MM rates are predicted to increase with a power of time since first exposure (TSFE), but the possible […]

The differential diagnosis between pleural sarcomatoid mesothelioma and spindle cell/pleomorphic (sarcomatoid) carcinomas of the lung: Evidence-Based guidelines from the International Mesothelioma Panel and the MESOPATH National Reference Center.

Human Pathology 2017 August 4 [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Marchevsky AM, et. al. Abstract Immunohistochemistry is used to distinguish sarcomatoid malignant mesotheliomas (SMM) from spindle cell and pleomorphic carcinomas (SPC) but there are no guidelines on how to interpret cases that show overlapping or equivocal immunohistochemical findings. A systematic literature review of the immunophenotype […]
